If I understand correctly...

Restless leg syndrome occurs before we fall asleep?

RMD occurs as we fall asleep and/or after we fall asleep, during NREM.(first stage)?

One of the other disorders mentioned occured during the third stage?

I wonder what about the stage of sleep the disorder occur, could help understand things better?

Re: ADD Linked With RMD

This is all very interesting! I had heard of RLS but not the others.

I've seen people start to use a cpap, which allows more oxygen to the brain, become much more "clear headed. People who can't get enough oxygen to the brain over time, can have serious issues. If someone has hypoxemia which is low levels of oxygen in the blood, none of the body is getting the correct amount of oxygen. People can appear to have delirium, dementia, depression,and anxiety so I'm sure ADHD is the mix too.

I have a pulse/oxygen meter that shows my oxygen levels are just fine during
the day. I wonder if there's a meter that can be worn while sleeping to record
oxygen levels during sleep?
